About the NSC

6.  Originally conceived as the North-South Expressway covering 21.5km to connect growing towns in the North region to the city centre, the LTA re-designed it as  the North-South Corridor, Singapore’s first integrated transport corridor featuring continuous bus lanes and at-grade cycling trunk routes, to serve public bus commuters, cyclists and pedestrians, in line with our car-lite vision. The NSC is expected to be completed in 2026.
